  • Have minor children
  • Have a DIY/form-generated will and want to upgrade to a more robust document

It’s Always Best to be Proactive Rather Than Reactive

As we age, there are numerous things to consider, not only for ourselves but our families. By planning today, we can ensure things are easier for ourselves and our families in the future. Don’t let everything you’ve worked for just slip away due to a lack of proper planning. Invest the time now to learn your options by speaking with one of our Florida elder law lawyers and making the choices that protect your legacy.

What is the difference between a Will and a Trust?

The terms Will and Trust are sometimes used interchangeably. However, this is not correct. There are some differences between the two.

A Will is a legal document outlining an individual’s final wishes. This can include how they want their personal affairs to be handled, including burial arrangements, etc., along with how they want their property to be distributed.

A Trust, on the other hand, is a financial instrument that allows the trustor to transfer their assets under the management of a third party, also known as the trustee. Depending on the type of trust, it may offer significant protection from creditors and other suits against the estate.

Pet Trust Planning Attorney in South Florida

If you do not plan, your pet may be negatively affected once you cannot care for them anymore. Your family may not want or know how to properly care for your animals. Without detailed instructions to help them, your family may not accept the challenge. A pet trust can help avoid changing your pet’s life or routine.

A pet trust is a type of trust that essentially acts as a manual for caring for your pet. In addition to detailed instructions, you can place money aside for your trustee to pay for your pet’s care. These resources alleviate the financial burden of caring for an animal.

Your pets are family, too. So protect them like family. Contact us to discuss adding a pet trust to your estate plan.
